Happy Memorial Day

Took a few photos at the Memorial Day parade in West Duluth this afternoon.. before the weather rolled in it was a pretty nice day in Duluth.

I don’t know if the seagull below though it was part of the flyover but I caught it in the same frame as the old plane that went over twice.

The Colors

MORE photos from the Duluth Memorial Day parade can be found in this FACEBOOK ALBUM.  I haven’t added any of the 7 shots to Smugmug for print sale but can if there is a request for them.


Website Update

I didn’t mention it before but I will still be putting all photos on the website pages they have been before, with links to the teams/schools on the right side of the blog page you’re looking at now.  The blog as the first page is a much easier way of keeping people updated on pages and games than the previously cluttered look.


Cloquet Softball Defeats Hermantown!

Some of the photos from the Cloquet softball 7AA quarterfinal playoff upset vs Hermantown in Cohasset May 25. 


In a scenario that’s hard to explain:

after they scored both Cloquet runs on a wild play in a 2-1 7AA Quarterfinal win vs Hermantown. Both players scored on throwing errors that started with Gustafson tagging up at second base on a Michaelson popup to the Hermantown catcher. Two errant throws later, the 'Jacks went from down 1-0 to ahead 2-1.

The Lumberjacks next play Proctor in the 7AA semifinals 1 pm Tuesday, May 29 at Braun Park, while Hibbing and Virginia play in the other semifinals at Braun.  The winners and losers of those games play each other, then the finals are held to finish the double elimination format.

All of the game photos are available to view at my SMUGMUG site in the individual game album and on Facebook page in my Cloquet softball album where there are 209 photos from Cloquet softball this season.


WordPress with Live Writer

One more blog test, using Windows Live Writer for the website blog, this will actually be easier to intergrate than I thought before, just need to change templates and the look of the website!


Testing WordPress blog

Just testing a WordPress blog for the first time, to be used on

I am planning on making the website into more of a photo blog, to be more easily found in search engines and such.. I will always have a photo or two from games posted on a blog entry.. then you can go to my Facebook Fan Page or my Smugmug photo ordering page to order photos prints from games.  All of the previous photos will remain, and pages will still be updated/added, just with a couple photos will be featured and the rest available to view on the pages mentioned above!

Once I’ve completely figured out WordPress I will as always have featured links to the high school sports pages etc, I just want to streamline things when the Fall sports seasons come, and starting early made the most sense.
